are the three states where romney's been behind by more than five points in all three states, it's a place where it's the white working class male vote if you will that has been almost even there, that it's been almost a 1:1. it can't be a 1:1. romney's got to win that by big, big margins to offset the gender issue, number one, but to just get over the top there, and that's been the disconnect, you know, the obama campaign's mantra in those three states has been to define romney as out of touch rich guy. did he fix that in the debate and did folks in those three states in particular say okay i'll give this guy a second look. >> 14 points. you knew that? >> are you talking about the gender gap? >> he's talking about the notre dame game. >> 14 points? you're getting 14 points? >> look at you. you don't want it now. >> sucker. >> suddenly getting nervous. this is the market. >> how about 13? >> the opening line was 13. i'll give thaw. >> okay, let's do 13. ohio state plays nebraska. >> it's a great weekend, georgia/south carolina, florida/lsu. ♪ >> undefeated since '66, that was the t-shirts we h

for romney. not only our national poll, but also in the swing state polls that we do with "the wall street journal" and maris college. take a look at the numbers. first of all, on the national basis. president obama among likely voters leads by three points, 49 to 46. that's down from a five-point edge that he had in our poll just about three weeks ago. if you also look at the nbc "wall street journal" maris swing state polls, he's pulled even with president obama in the state of florida. that's the biggest swing state, 29 electoral votes. if you go then to virginia, he's also pulled within two points in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida an

points. rasmussen and gallup at 5 and rasmussen at 2. >> polls it show obama up 11 in swing states. that sounds high to me. but in any case, obama's ahead, romney has to change something. he has a chance to do it. >> all right, john harwood, thank you. >> today is the start of the fourth quarter. and joining us is teach stanley, chief economist for peerpont securities. the lead story is how trade is slowing around the world. all of europe's problems getting exported to the rest of the world. what do you think this means just in terms of the fourth quarter and maybe a look into next year? >> good morning, becky. well, i think right now the u.s. economy is really slow in part because of what you guys were just talking about, the election. i think a lot of businesses have gone to the sidelines and they're waiting to see as you all discuss, we have a huge choice to be made. and businesses don't really know what the outlook is going to be for the next four years. so if i have -- if i'm a businessman and i have an investment or hiring decision to make, i'm just going to wait a couple mon

or other poll. >> yeah but you look at all the polls, not just nationally but in the swing states he was behind. and the romney campaign acknowledged that. >> there's a difference between being behind and having nothing left to lose because you're totally written off by even your own party. >> the point i was making -- >> i don't agree with arianna on that either. i think he was still in the game going into the debate. he's more in the game after the debate than he was before. >> even late in the fourth quarter down by, i thought he said two touchdowns. >> two scores. >> all right. late in the fourth quarter -- >> two safeties. >> it was two safeties, whatever you were talking about, i don't think that was true either. we'll see. there's a poll coming out november 6 i want you to look at. >> you're right. >> the bottom line is -- >> i will say on that point, guys, is that romney scored last night. the question is can he score again? >> how much is he down now, john? >> i think is he still down a touchdown. >> how much time is left? >> i think we've got about right about two minutes i
